Reviewed 31 August 2014

My wife and our two adult daughters stayed 2 nights at the WhitePark House. It is one of the most beautifully kept and furnished bed and breakfasts. Bob is as accommodating and great a host as we have had the pleasure to stay with. The rooms were beautiful and breakfast and afternoon tea were great. Bob went out of his way to accommodate one of my daughters who has various food restrictions. WhitePark is wonderfully located with easy access to Dunluce Castle, the Rope Bridge, and the Giant's Causeway. Just a wonderful place with a wonderful host.

The Whitepark House is located on the Antrim coastline, very well situated for visiting The Giant's Causeway, the rope bridge and the town of Bushmills, where 2 very good restaurants can be found. The home is located on the busy coast road and is easy to locate, it has 4 large visitor bedrooms and access within the house to various other rooms for reading, resting or chatting are, the views out to the sea from the front are very nice. Having read a few negative comments about the owner we were a little on guard at first but we personally found Bob a fine knowledgable host, very attentive, who really tries to help and ensure his guests enjoy their visit to his home and the wider area. He keeps a very clean tidy precise home and should be rightly proud of the various tourist and hospitality awards that have been afforded to him. There is nothing within 4 miles of the house so a car is necessary. We found the whole area enchanting and would certainly recommend a visit.

We recently spent 3 nights here and it was pretty much perfect. Bob is an excellent host - very friendly and helpful with a good sense of humour. The beautiful house is filled with Asian art and furnishings. We had a very big room overlooking the perfect garden and it was possibly the most nicely appointed B&B room we've ever stayed in. Very comfortable leather bed. Very good storage and plenty of closet space. Everything spotlessly clean. Free wifi. Very good breakfast. The location is perfect for exploring the area. We'll definitely go back.

The Whitepark House is well situated on the Antrim coastline, just outside the pretty little town of Ballintoy. The Giant's Causeway, the rope bridge and the town of Bushmills are all within a 10 minute drive in various directions so it is in a good central location for seeing the sights. The home is quite large and sits up on a little hill where the views out to the sea are very nice. Bob is a good host and cooks a delicious breakfast which is served on a lovely glassed in terrace. Unfortunately there was an unexpected water outage in the area the morning of our departure so we were unable to shower. Although the situation was out of Bob's control, he generously offered to adjust our bill.

My husband and I, and our teenage son spent 4 nights here and had a lovely, relaxing time. Bob couldn't have been more welcoming and it seems everything has been thought of. He suggested places to eat and things to see, both nearby and further afield that really helped us make the most of our time. The house is beautiful too, as is the cat often seen in the garden.

My husband and I traveled with two friends to NI last April and are thinking of returning in the Fall. No trip to the Antrim Coast would be complete without staying at Whitepark House and enjoying the hospitality of Bob Isles. The property is immaculate, beautifully decorated and the owner, Bob, is one of the most colorful, helpful, sincere hosts who can rustle up a scrumptious breakfast and a delicious afternoon tea..... served with lightness and laughter. We'll be back, Bob.

Room Tip: I suspect every room is a good room.

My husband and I stayed at Whitepark House and truly enjoyed our stay. Bob treated us like family and spent so much time making sure we were happy. The rooms are clean and well appointed and his breakfast is made to order. Thanks for a truly wonderful time. We have travelled all over the world in special places and this is one of them.
